force to get rid of moammar gadhafi, to help libya stand up as it moved towards elections, as it tries to start anew. i think there's going to be a lot of gut checking right now about how the u.s. wants to proceed. not just with libya. but with a lot of countries in the middle east. i mean if you look at the islamic wave that has swept the middle east in terms of these revolutions, the u.s. was very apprehensive, that we are going to support democratic movements. but they also said, secretary clinton has also said that an election does not a democracy make. and so these countries are not going to necessarily hold up to their end of the bargain. there are diplomatic conventions about protecting u.s. facilities. about holding to democratic values. and you saw some statements coming out of the libyan interior ministry right now blaming the united states, in fact, for something like this. i think thers going to be a lot of, you know, the u.s. is really going to hunker down and think about how they want to proceed now. not just in libya but in the whole region. >> elise, this is brooke. let
now. >>> breaking news here this early thursday morning. we have iran, yemen, egypt, and libya. we're talking about all four this morning. new clashes now and anger. it's really spreading throughout the middle east in the overnight hours. cnn reporting mobs, protesters outside a swiss embassy in tehran, iran, which handles u.s. interests there and at the u.s. embassies in sanaa, that is a capital of yemen, and of course, in cairo in egypt. >> we want to get right to iran right now. we are on the phone with shirrzod, who hopefully can tell us what's going on in tehran. what is the latest, shirzad? >> the protests against this new anti-islam film took about two hours, it started about noon local time, about 2 1/2 hours ago, and wrapped up about half an hour ago. there are only about a dozen riot, anti-riot police still stationed around the embassy compound, but i didn't see anything move inside or inside the embassy at all, i couldn't see anything. i don't know if there's anybody in there at all or not. but the protests are very peaceful. the crowds of university students were kept w
, and a major development in libya. the first arrests in connection with the attack that killed two well-respected american diplomats and two former navy s.e.a.l.s. >> want to begin our worldwide coverage this morning out of cairo with ian lee. ian talk to me a little bit about this world via twitter from the muslim brotherhood that they are announcing the protests will only be held in tahrir square. why is that? >> well, brook, what the muslim brotherhood is saying, is that by canceling the protests around egypt, they hope to curb any violence that happens from those protests. but they said they're holding a symbolic protest in tahrir square. they also added that because it's symbolic, means there's not going to be a lot of people, a low turnout. you know, they can't have one protest in one place. that's going to draw people. but right now in tahrir square what we're seeing, we're seeing a couple thousand people in the square. so low numbers, according to egypt standards. not really the numbers we've seen in previous protests. >> do you think the egyptians will abide by that? >> well, t
of the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens, and three other americans. the nation's counterterrorism chief is telling congress that armed extreme iists saw an opportunity to attack during an protest over an anti-muslim film and took that opportunity. >> i would say, yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our country. >> sources tell cnn that ambassador stevens expressed concerns in security in the months before he died. he also acknowledged being on an al qaeda hit list. senator john mccain was practically seething last night when you talked to anderson on "a.c. 360". >> does it make any sense to you the level of -- or the small level of security he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. and i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense is the white house spokesman, secretary of state, and our ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically that it was not a terrorist attack, when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack, including rocket-propelled grenades and heavy weapons and a very well-carried out military ope
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. u.s. officials say lost amid the tragedy and dramatic headlines was the fact that most were not massive protests. but crowds numbering in the hundreds, sometimes in the thousands. >> the mobs we've seen on the outside of these embassies are a small minority. they're the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes. >> reporter: susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., said the attacks on u.s. targets began as spontaneous protests, rejecting earlier claims they were part of a plot to coincide with last week's anniversary of 9/11. the anti-american protests have fast become the obama administration's most pressing foreign policy crisis. but the white house faces other urgent challenges in the region. on sunday, four u.s. soldiers were killed in afghanistan. the latest in a breakout of insider attacks where afghan forces target nato troops. and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continued to ratchet pressure on washington to set a red line for iran, claiming iran is months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb. >> i think th
that are bubbling now in the mideast and questions over whether the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya was planned or not planned. press secretary jay carney told reporters yesterday this, it is self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. that's the first time the white house has characterized this as a terrorist attack. carney, though, also appears to stand by this comment from wednesday. listen. >> based on the information that we had at the time, and have to this day, we do not have evidence that it was premeditated. >> jamie rubin is former assistant secretary of state. he's currently counselor to new york governor andrew cuomo. let's talk about what seems to be contradictory. you hear from jay carney, you hear from the white house, you hear from the state department, it was a terror attack, but not preplanned. you hear from the prime minister of libya that, in fact, it was preplanned. why disconnect on those two fronts? >> i think a lot of the wording is getting a little confused. i think what the administration is trying to communicate is that they don't b
ross, thank you. our news making headlines today? >> libya's president ordering up the break-up of all militias that don't fall under the government authority. the order comes in response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed four americans, including ambassador christopher steven. >>> mitt romney sounds like he's ready for a reboot and a fight. the gop nominee says he'll get more aggressive in the first six weeks of the race. he says president obama has been putting words in his mouth and he plans to put a stop to it. >> i think that the president's campaign has focused its advertising in many cases on very inaccurate portrayals of my position. they've been very aggressive in their attacks both on a personal basis, on a policy basis. >> the president says one of the biggest disappointments of his fist four years in office is his failure to change the political climate in washington. >> i think that, you know, as president i bear responsibility for everything, to some dpre. and one of the things i've realized over the last two years is that that only has happened
two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahmadinejad, yesterday told the united nations in a speech about the rule of law that the security council members should be changed. they are allowing, in effect, israel to possess a nuclear weapon, while all the attention is focused on tehran. earlier in a meeting with reporters, he, in effect, again, questioned israel's legitimacy. this issue, of course, has been seen on the u.n. stage here for years. sometimes it's a side show. there are many other points president obama is going to mention, including saying how these attacks based on a video were totally uncalled for in the middle east region and that free speech must be a cornerstone of american democracy. soledad? >> all right, lots to look forw
suggesting that al qaeda may have been behind the attack on that libya consulate that killed four americans. why has it taken them so long to come forward with this? and do we have the full story, even now? >>> and take a look at this. a teenager dressed in a sheet with a fake grenade launcher walking the streets of phoenix. he and his uncle were trying to make a point, what point, i'm not sure? and did it work? you're watching "starting point." >>> america finally learned what it would finally take to settle a labor dispute. a blown interception call that not only cost the green bay packers a victory, but cost one fan a week of wearing only a seattle seahawks jersey and a thong. up. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up. everyday delta flies a quarter of million people while investing billions improving everything from booking to baggage claim. we're raising the bar on flying and tomorrow we will up it yet again. boring. boring.

patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relationships with a lot of foreign leaders. which of the foreign leaders is he closest to? >> i think he's very close to a number of our nato allies. to the president of turkey, to a number of leaders across the gulf, and asia. again, you know, i just think it's -- to wage that criticism, it's -- it's not based on the actual facts. and my, you know, witnessing of the president in action tells me that he has very, very close and warm relations with a number of his counterparts around the world. and he works at those relationships. he invests in those relationships. >> michele, we should show some of these latest polls show the president with a lead in some of these swing states, like ohio, and florida, and pennsylvania, in some cases a dou
in this case, with the outcry over the film that the kind of thing that the attack of the embassy in libya and other places. that's what they're trying to make fun of. it's always in bad taste. that's what the magazine is known for. and their argument has been that, look, you know, you don't have to buy this magazine. there's nothing on the cover that is insulting, and so it's basically the people that buy it that have the privilege, if that's what you want to call it, of seeing these insulting cartoons. of course, the islamic community here is totally upset. islam is the second most important religion in france, and there's been quite an outcry, and they have said that they are going to take the magazine to court if there's anything, any law that has been broken. >> jim bittermann in paris. thank you. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," many critics say that mitt romney's statement where he called half of america roughly victims is a major blunder. our next guest says no, this could really help his campaign. we're going to talk with redstate.com's erick erickson. also we tol
